Even More Bees...

Obviously, I like to photograph bees. They're easy to find, relatively large (for bugs), and very hairy. I took these in the garden at about 1.5:1 macro magnification. The biggest difficulty is not blurring the image (hand-holding the camera) and managing depth of field (which is quite narrow for any aperture I can hand-hold).

I like this one because it clearly shows the pollen basket, an indentation on bees' legs where they store pollen as they collect it.
